– A Declining Murder Rate Suggests That A Fully Transparent Economy Is Becoming Possible –
Over the last 12 months… 289 homicides have occurred in NYC. Nevertheless, that was a record low and a huge improvement from the nearly 2,200 homicides, which had occurred here in 1990. Still, today I wonder… what could become the ramifications of this down-turn in violence?
Because in my opinion, the greatest implication of this trend… should revolve around implementing subway systems, nationwide.
And specifically, I believe that the, “violent crime statistic,” is the number one reason that other cities don’t have subway systems, like New York does.
Furthermore, I also believe that this trend signifies a legislative cornerstone geared towards economic transparency… whereby mass transit, intrinsically ties the masses together. Also, I believe that a subway system could be implemented today, despite being put off by violent crime, in the past. Which is to say that of the 9+ million people in NYC today, less than 300 homicides occurred this past year, despite some of the worst income disparity in the world… and is that not a sign of maturity? Or simply tyrannical obedience?
Yet, working in Manhattan today, I can attest that some of this pacifism is also seemingly a bi-product of an increasingly foreign population, perhaps humbled by the US economy. For this reason, it is of my opinion that the current composition of the city, in terms of an increased immigrant population, has also contributed to this downturn in violence.
Still, in conclusion, what could occur due to this abhorrently declining murder rate? I personally believe that this trend could lead to a number of things, however an increased support for both; economic transparency and subway systems, to me makes the most sense. Meaning, that with the murder rate dropping… economic institutions might consider increasing transparency, particularly in regards to home-ownership, mass transit and retirement planning.
